Congrats to Canada and USA for a great game, great tournament, and for giving us a little bit of hockey to watch during these unprecedented times. Bravo world juniors!

Lots of talent with lots of scorers on that Canadian team but they still fell short .... I think most would agree that the USA were the better team in the final so congratulations are in order...

Thank god for sports with what’s been going on

It was Spencer Knight, the kid from Connecticut, who shut down the Canadians and sent them home without a goal in the final. If I am not mistaken he had 2 straight shutouts earlier in this tournament:


Trevor Zegras was named Tournament MVP after leading all tourney scorers with 18 points. He is a Ducks draft pick. The Florida Panthers have Knight, who was drafted 1st round #13 overall in 2019. The 19 year old hero is shown here in his BC uniform:

The Bruins are considering playing home games outdoors this season
The possibility of regularly competing at Fenway Park is in an "exploratory phase."

“The Bruins have been in “consistent contact” with both the National Hockey League and state and city officials about potentially playing their home games outdoors this upcoming season....

The Bruins are reportedly one of six teams looking into the idea, along with the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, Dallas Stars, and Nashville Predators...”


^^I saw The Bruins host the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Winter Classic played at Fenway (Home of the Red Sox).
I have also seen College Hockey at Fenway.
I’m sure the Cold Weather and Snow may have a big Factor for which Games get played outdoors.
Also those rare Warm Winter Days....


***POND HOCKEY***
I think that good idea

If the NFL and MLB were able to have seasons I’m cautiously hopeful that the NHL will be able to put together a season. Looking forward to Wednesday!

Mike Milbury fired by NBC:
He essentially was NBC's answer to Don Cherry, and ended up like Cherry. The networks like guys who are opinionated, you just can't offend with your opinions and Milbury did so a few too many times.

On the other hand they gave Babcock a job and this now gives him something to do. Which some Leafs fans will be happy about.

NHL Action starts with 5 games tonight highlighted by a game in the Canadian division between Montreal and Toronto. It's not clear if the teams are really ready to play after a 2 week camp, but play they will!

Which team will emerge atop the Canadian division? Toronto? Calgary? Edmonton? Vancouver? Stay tuned.

I checked the TV schedule and the 3 games between the American teams will all be televised on NBCSN- Penguins Flyers at 5:30 pm, Blackhawks - Lightning at 8 pm and Blues Avalanche at 10::30.

The two games in the Canadian Division will not be televised in the USA. None of the Canadian division games in the regular season will likely be televised in the USA. This doesn't bode well for TV revenues of the Canadian teams unless they share with the American teams what they are getting from NBCSN.

The NHL network is picking up Canadian games, at least they are on Saturday. Also, you can get the NHL.tv season package for $99 excluding games in your local area. I might not get it this year because of so much local hockey to watch in the NY area with the Rangers, Islanders and Devils. When travel was permitted to Canada, it was great because I could watch my local teams after banging some hot SP’s. I may still get it to watch the west coast and Canada games. Split it with a friend and your looking at $50 for the season and you can watch pretty much anything you want.

So un bon départ...TORONTO--T.BAY--FLYERS and surprising CANUCKS ---they have talented young team---all won their first meeting.
Was a bit strange-bizarre--to watch HOLTBY with VAN. and BIG JOE playing with MATTHEWS....on va s'habituer.....HOLTBY peut faire la différence pour les CANUCKS.....très bonne acquisition.
